People, get ready: the Leonid Meteor Shower is fast approaching . . .
100,000 Deaths Expected in An Imminent Attack Against the U.S. What are we to make of this? Rumor-mongering or legitimate warning?
Camels Compete In Beauty Contest: Here's my entry; the trusty white camel which carried me 167 miles through the Gobi Desert. (Note about linked story: the sub-headline refers to a "dromedary," which is the one-humped camel found in the Mid-East, although the story is about a camel beauty contest which took place in China. The text of the story correctly refers to Bactrian, or two-humped camels, such as are found in China and Mongolia. Also the stock-photo which accompanies the story incorrectly shows dromedaries.

Camels . . . you can't help but love'em.
